Documentation for Atari Coin Op FORTH And Swarthmore Extensions by Brock A. Miller, David E. McIntyre, and Eugene A. Klotz. May 31, 1983. This is a programming language that was - as far as I can tell - unreleased to the public until now. Atari Coin Op FORTH seems to be a variant on fig-FORTH. This file contains the manual itself (127 pages) followed by 10 pages of "ephemera" that was in the binder with the manual:  - a letter from Gene Klotz to Bob Kahn at Atari  - Fig-FORTH...
